Acorn Superglide Stairlifts power supply

  • Works during Power failure
  • Battery powered Stairlift
  • No mains voltage on the stairlift
  • No trailing cables
  • Rapid and simple installation - no mess or disruption
  • Smooth and near silent operation
  • 'Soft start / soft stop'

Acorn stairlifts are powered by direct current (DC) supplied by rechargeable batteries. These deliver a smooth, ultra-quiet and safe ride quality. The batteries are maintenance-free and charged by a safe 15 volt AC, which is stepped-down from the domestic mains supply with a transformer. Using this method of power for your stairlift has many advantages. If there is ever a power failure in your home your stairlift continues to function, so you will never get stranded. There is no mains voltage power to your stairlift. As the power supply is onboard the stairlift itself there is no troublesome trailing cable as you get with AC powered lifts. DC battery power gives an extremely smooth and near silent operation. It also allows us to build in a Soft start / soft stop', this means that there is no jolting or lurching as your stairlift starts or finishes its journey. This adds to the feeling of safety and stability.

Whisper quite comfort ride.

Acorn Superglide Stairlifts Ride Quality

  • Smoothest, quietest and most luxurious ride quality
  • Unique rail profile and chassis roller system
  • DC power
  • Rack and pinion drive systems
  • superb feeling of safety and stability

The peerless ride quality is attributed to our unique rail profile and chassis roller system working in conjunction with the DC power and rack and pinion drive systems. Typically, other stairlifts feature four, or sometimes six, chassis rollers and a box section rail. The Acorn Superglide stairlift has eight rollers, giving a surface contact area at least four times greater than competitor products. Such features, along with our unique double-tube rail profile, gives the smoothest, quietest and most luxurious ride quality currently available, and a superb feeling of safety and stability when using the stairlift.

Remote control and easy
to use onboard control.

All of the easy to use features are built into each Stairlift Acorn manufacture. Footrest means the stairs remain available for use by others when the stairlift is not in use. Due to the stairlift's DC power supply noise levels are at whisper quiet levels. The lift can be 'sent' or 'called' to wherever it is needed by using the infra-red remote control. There is no jolting or lurching as the lift starts or finishes its journey. Swivel seat with locking catch - ensures easy mounting and dismounting from the stairlift. The lift will not operate unless the seat is in the correct riding position. The diagnostic digital display mounted on the stairlift carriage shows clearly when the lift is in the normal operating position and also provides invaluable diagnostic information in the unlikely event of a fault with your stairlift.
